What is Love Your Clothes?
Love Your Clothes is a national sustainability campaign that aims to reduce the environmental impact of clothing across the UK and influence a more circular approach to clothing globally.
Launched in 2014, the Love Your Clothes campaign has been developed together with industry organisations to help change the way the UK consumer buy, use and dispose of their clothing.
Why Love Your Clothes?
Every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK. To help combat this issue, the Love Your Clothes campaign works to help inspire and influence consumers to make small conscious changes to reduce the impact of clothes on the environment.

Love Your Clothes encourages all partners to use the communication materials to run their own clothing and textile campaigns, events and workshops and share the messages to influence behaviour change amongst consumers.
